Managing employee leaves has and will continue to be challenging as changes in law and regulation require local educational agencies (LEAs) to carefully track eligibility for leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA), California Family Rights Act (CFRA), Pregnancy Disability Act (PDA), local collective bargaining agreements, statutory requirements, board policies, and local practice. This workshop will provide participants with operational advice on how to effectively manage employee leaves in this era of continuing change.
Employees who are covered by more than one of these laws are entitled to the rights set out in the most protective law. Weaving in the patchwork of leave entitlements set out in collective bargaining agreements and local practices makes classifying employee leave, and tracking, difficult for many LEAs. Compliance with the law is established through utilizing tracking tools as well as maintaining accurate documentation and clear written communication regarding leave entitlements.
From the larger LEA to the smaller, the management of employee attendance is an essential function of the business services and human resources departments. Due to the substantial fiscal impacts of employee leave, and its influence on operational efficiency and employee relations, it is critical that LEAs have an effective employee leave program established. This two-part webinar series will provide human resources and fiscal services departments with the tools needed to evaluate their current employee’s leave status, provide leave consistent with current laws and regulations, and move toward operational efficiency and best practices.
